What to Do First After a Slip and Fall Injury

If you've been hurt in a slip and fall accident, it can be a scary and confusing time. Most people are more concerned about their health and well-being, and rightly so. You should be. But there will come a time when the real impact of your accident will start to be felt. That could be seen as medical bills piling up or ongoing pain despite treatment.

Because of what might happen in the future, it's important to know what you need to do right now, after the slip and fall has happened. That way you will be prepared to take the proper legal steps.

Step One: Get Immediate Medical Attention

This may have been your first instinct, and if you've seen a doctor, that's great! If you haven't seen a doctor because you thought you felt OK, please reconsider. Sometimes injuries from slips and falls aren't apparent right away. 

Step Two: Check the Scene

After the fall has happened, make sure you look around at the area you're in. Did you trip over a display that was out of place? Was the floor wet without proper signage present to warn people? Taking pictures is a good idea.
